This mum and her disabled daughter are due to move into new accommodation in the next few weeks. Currently the lounge has inadequate flooring. This money would provide carpet for the lounge to ensure it is safe and homely for mum and daughter.
This lady suffers from severe epilepsy and has now got a sensory dog to help her with the disability. She also has type 1 diabetes and intestinal problems. She was homeless before obtaining a council tenancy and has had to use what she can out of Universal Credit and disability benefits to furnish her property. She has been unable to afford a washing machine, so a local charity will supply her with this. A microwave would make her life a little easier, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
P is a single mum trying to do her best. She suffers from mental health and medical issues from a surgery that didn't go as well as expected. A near tragedy was recently averted when her daughter was stabbed in a domestic violence incident. The perpetrator is now in prison. Debts have built up during this difficult time, and P is being supported by Christians Against Poverty with these. Please could you help her with the fee to enable her to go through a Debt Relief Order?
J was supported into a new property after being street homeless. He doesn't have the money to purchase a washing machine, but he needs his own washing machine to enable him to have clean clothes. He doesn't have any spare money to use the Launderette and has no family or friends that could help him by using theirs. Your support with a new washing machine would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you.
J has moved into sheltered housing from a furnished flat. She has had to start all over again and, due to learning disabilities and special needs, is really struggling with having a bare flat with nothing. We would love to be able to carpet one room for her so that she feels comfortable there. Could you help with that?
A is a single mum and carer to her son who has special needs. They both suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. S has recently moved back into the area after struggling to find somewhere to live and residing in a caravan. Her son has just had his disability benefits stopped so she is reapplying. In the meantime, they are struggling to afford to live and have had to use the Foodbank. Please can you help S with shopping vouchers so she can afford to look after her son until his benefits are reinstated? Thank you.
This request is for a single mum and her teenage daughter who are needing to move house due to harassment and threats from their current neighbours. The new home will be much more suitable for this family, as it will be more accessible for mum who has a disability. The family are unable to cover the costs of a removal van, so we hope to help them with this.
Our client would like some help in purchasing two garden chairs so that she and her adult daughter, with severe developmental delays, can safely enjoy the outdoors. K is the sole carer for her daughter and it is very difficult for her to take her daughter to public spaces as she is at risk from dogs, wandering into cycle pathways or wandering off. K's small garden is secure and safe for her daughter, and she would love to be able to sit in the garden with her, which will provide entertainment for her daughter and much needed respite for mum.

S is a full time carer for her partner who has severe mobility issues. They have rarely been out of the house since before the pandemic and are now both suffering with their mental health. Their washing machine is broken which is making things more difficult. Your support would enable the purchase of a washing machine and make things a little less difficult.
We are supporting a young disabled lady who is struggling with energy & utility costs. She is in her first ever property after being homeless for much of her childhood. She is trying to make a new start and is struggling on a very low income. Her washing machine is broken and she cannot afford to use the local laundrette. Having a washing machine will make such a difference to her confidence as she will be able to look presentable after not being able to wash her clothes for much of her life.
This lady has been under the Mental Health Team, and has been referred to the Wheelchair Service for a self-propelled chair as she can't manage her present wheelchair anymore. Her life is her garden which is small but she needs someone to plant it for her and paint her small shed, for which she already has the paint. Sitting out in the garden is vital for her mental health. Sadly the cost of living crisis means she can't afford to pay a gardener to do this work, so she would be so grateful for our help.
Michael and his wife have been having to decide whether to pay for utilities or fuel in their mobility car to attend health appointments. Michaels wife has several health issues including depression, kidney stones that may need surgery and musculoskeletal disability. The appointments vary in terms of frequency, but they feel if they can pay their water rates they would be able to fund the visits to the hospital, 52m round trip. They are also looking into using the Good turn scheme for transport.
